Of her subjects, Camille says:

Each iceberg has its own individual personality… Some refuse to give up and hold on to the bitter end, while others can’t take it anymore and crumble in a fit of dramatic passion.

Quite lovely, don’t you think? I really am in awe of the natural world.

Camille’s stunning images allow us to glimpse the exquisite beauty of these incredible environments, places most of us will never have the opportunity to experience for ourselves…

I approach the images of icebergs as portraits of individuals, much like family photos of my ancestors.
